Report: Mark Teixeira expected to join ESPN as an analyst

It appears as if Mark Teixeira isn’t taking any time off following his retirement from baseball.

According to David Waldstein of the NY Times, Teixeira is expected to join ESPN as an analyst, and could begin his newfound career during spring training.

Teixeira has shown an affinity for broadcasting and television, as most Yankees fans know from watching his spoof talk show, “Foul Territory,” a couple years ago. Tex has also appeared on CNBC over the yearsย to discuss his business ventures and investments, so he’s already familiar with the camera. Waldstein noted that Teixeira was a guest radio host on ESPN’s “Mike & Mike” show in 2014, and also made a cameo appearance on the Showtime series “Billions.”

Teixeira, who turns 37 in April, announced his plans to retire from baseball last August in the final year of an eight-year, $180 million contract with the Yankees. For his career, Tex slashed .268/.360/.509 with 409 home runs and 1298 RBI over parts of 14 seasons with the Yankees, Angels, Braves and Rangers.

According to Waldstein, ESPN is expected to make an announcement on Tuesday.
